For the final time, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose took the ring together at The Shield's Final Chapter on Sunday night at TaxSlayer Center.

With Ambrose not renewing his contract, the trio got one final opportunity to show what it could do, and it did not disappoint. Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre came out hoping to avenge their loss to The Shield at Fastlane but weren't successful, suffering a defeat at the hands of the night's main attraction.

The match ended with a Shield Bomb, as could have been expected, with Corbin being thrown hard into the mat.

Ambrose also showcased plenty of his individual skill in his last match before leaving WWE:

Rollins and Reigns also did their part in what became an emotional night for the longtime group.

The fun continued as each of the wrestlers gave post-match speeches to the crowd.

"If anyone tells you that you can't do something you march forward and tell them that The Shield said so," Ambrose said.

Meanwhile, the fans in attendance were treated to a few other bouts to kick things off.

In the first match of the day, Finn Balor retained his intercontinental belt with a victory over Elias:

Elias opened the show with a song on his guitar, but he left the ring in disappointment.

The Riott Squad then had a chance to close out its run, although Bayley and Ember Moon defeated Sarah Logan and Ruby Riott in a tag team match.

Still, the night belonged to The Shield as the team closed the book on a memorable part of WWE history.
